Nature, Culture and Colonisation (6 points)
Leader: Dr Kate Rigby
Synopsis: This unit address the dynamic interrelationship of nature and culture with respect to the European exploration and colonization of Australia and New Zealand. Through the analysis and interpretation of a range of written and visual texts, we will consider how cultural differences inform the perception of, and relationship to, the natural environment, as well as the ways in which the natural environment itself shapes patterns of settlement and modes of representation. The approach is multidisciplinary, incorporating ecocritical, postcolonial, and feminist perspectives
